Storyboard Text

  • I'm a Sumerian and I leave in my city-state in Sumer. Here the main activity is to farm, but only boys and men farm normally.
  • (description)
  • Each city-state has its own ruler, special god and army. We, the Sumerians, created the first written language, the cuneiform. I like to live here but there are a lot of conflicts between the city-states and that will bring us problems soon.
  • (description)
  • I'm Sargon and I was the first ruler and creator of the first empire, the Akkadian Empire. We conquered Sumer, one city-state at a time and now we rule the Fertile Crescent
  • 
  • I'm Hammurabi and I was the Babylonian king when we, the babylonians, conquered Mesopotamia. By doing that we formed the Babylonian Empire. I created a code that had all of ours laws, in that code the punishment matched the seriousness of the crime. It was made to protect the less powerful too.
  • We are the Assyrian army and we're feared through the land. We're well trained and disciplined and helped creating the Assyrian Empire. We destroy everything that stays in our way and rob just for fun. The key to our success was is that we use iron weapons that are stronger than the tin and copper ones.
  • Life in Assyria isn't easy. The punishments for breaking the law are much harsher. The Assyrians like to write and collect stories, they even created a giant building full of books that they named library! They really like to create beautiful and and large temples. Farming and trading are very important to them
  • We don't agree with the rules and the punishments are too hard so we revolt and took over. We are named the Chaldean. We conquered the Mesopotamia land and formed the New Babylonian Empire. We did great buildings including the king's palace.
